Treasury to sell 30 million shares of GM stock
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Treasury Department says it will sell an additional 30 million shares of General Motors stock this month in its on-going effort to dispose of all of its remaining shares of the giant automaker acquired as part of the government’s bailout of GM.
Treasury said Wednesday that it would sell its shares in conjunction with the sale of 20 million shares of GM stock held by the UAW Retiree Medical Benefits Trust, bringing the total size of the sale to 50 million shares.
In December, Treasury sold 200 million shares of GM stock back to the company. At that time, Treasury announced that it intended to sell its remaining 300 million shares of GM stock into the market by early 2014.
